Yoke and Yoga

Yoga is a family of ancient spiritual practices originating in India. It is one of the six schools of Hindu philosophy, in which it is often paired with Samkhya, and they are referred together as the Samkhya-Yoga school. The word "yoga" derives from the Sanskrit root yuj ("to yoke"); which is cognate to modern English "yoke", "jugal" and "jugum" in Latin. All derive from the Proto-Indo-European root *yeug- meaning "to join" or "unite" It is generally translated as "union of the individual atma (loosely translated to mean soul) with Paramatma, the universal soul."

Its a great art. Do you wanna know the short cut. Mathew 11:30 My yoke is easy and my burden is light.
